Now that the Avengers have stopped the Hood from gathering up all the Infinity Gems (among other significant developments from Avengers #12, which we won't spoil just yet), the time now comes for them to get involved with Marvel's big Fear Itself event, and artist Chris Bachalo is going to be stepping in to take Earth's Mightiest Heroes into the fray alongside Brian Michael Bendis.
From what Marvel's just sent us for Avengers #13, it looks like we're in the calm before the "hammer-wielding fearmonger" storm with some flashbacks to happier times, if that's Tony Stark drinking, Jarvis with black hair and Janet Van Dyne still alive in the first page here. How that will mix in with the shots of Wolverine and…uh… what looks to be "The Protector" Noh-Varr being suggestively fed an egg by the Red Hulk is anyone's guess. And are they also implying some kind of flirtation between Hawkeye and Spider-Woman? Oh, team dynamics!
